This is Sidra this morning, about to go to his first day in second grade. I can’t believe how fast time is flying! He was entering first grade not so long time ago and now he’s suddenly a second-grade student.
The school will finish early today, so he didn’t have to bring his randoseru (school bag). I made him those new lesson bag and uwabaki (inside shoes) bag yesterday. The fabric is grey cotton with robot print by Kokka, leftover from Sidra’s robot bag. I made it two years ago when he’s still in kindergarten.
The fabric wasn’t that much, but I added white quilted cotton to make the whole bags. On second thought, maybe white is not the best choice for kid’s bag. Oh well, we’ll see…. Anyway, the inside of both bags are also lined with quilted cotton to make them stronger. Sidra loves to bring books from school library, and two lesson bags that I made before have big holes on the corner from the books. The bag straps are grey cotton webbing, they’re strong and won’t get twisted like fabric straps. I’ve learned this lesson from those previous lesson bags too.
Today he will have new class, new classmates, and new sensei (teacher). Ganbatte, my baby!
